Nose: This is sweet and fruity. At first there’s a layer of red apples surrounded by vanilla and oak. There’s a brighter lemon note floating around somewhere within. There’s a maltiness, and with time also a butterscotch note, slowly moving forward. It stays somewhere behind and then merges with the other flavours. This is a nice, straight forward nose. It is mild and a bit uneventful though.
Mouth: It starts out a bit flat for a short moment and then starts with the maltiness, vanilla and butterscotch on top. It soon starts to spread out and become more textured which is a very nice and surprising transition. There’s a hint of sweet liquorice coming through as well as the red apples although they tend to lean more towards being ripe at this point. The butterscotch note seems to move back and then stay as a baseline throughout.
Finish: It starts out with a boost of the fresher fruitiness with a top note of mild menthol. It soon mellows out and return the same flavour profile as before. The finish is quite long, first with the ripe apples, vanilla and maltiness then with a quite nice fresh oakiness. This is a decent whisky with some nice flavours muted down to suit the inexperienced palate.
This whisky is matured in ex-bourbon barrels for an undisclosed amount of time. There’s not much more information to be found about this GoT release.
